LGBT Community Event/Fundraiser for
Angie Craig
Democratic Candidate for U.S. Congress
Wednesday, June 1
6p to 7p

Special guests: Mayor Betsy Hodges, Minneapolis Council Members Lisa Goodman and Jacob Frey, LGBT political pioneers Sen. Scott Dibble and Rep. Karen Clark.

Angie, an executive at St. Jude Medical, is a candidate to become one of seven LGBT members of the U.S. Congress, representing Minnesota’s Second District, a seat currently held by the retiring John Kline, a Republican. A win by Angie would be truly historic, making her one of just a handful of out gay Members of Congress – and the first from Minnesota – and flipping a Republican seat to the Democrats. The race is getting national attention, since Minnesota’s Second is a truly “purple district” – meaning it could go Democratic or Republican – and since a gay business woman and political progressive is running against a prominent far-right Republican, radio personality Jason Lewis, Minnesota’s own Rush Limbaugh. Angie, her wife, Cheryl, and their four sons live in Eagan. Find out more at You can also sign-up to volunteer at the site.

Suggested Donation: $1,000, $500 or $250 to be an event chair/host and join Angie and the other hosts for a special wine reception before the main event.

$150, $100, $50 or $35 – or any amount – to attend the event. Potential campaign volunteers are also welcome!
